|[Eg0_131] Ayato & Natalia Kamia : Cluster - Ayato & Natalia Kamia|
Between abandoned strings warped tapes and esoteric radio broadcasts, Ayato and Natalia Kamia have found / created a new territory to explore. They are not afraid of silence, they've patiently listened to the resonating spaces (inside / outside) and built 8 surprising pieces that will spin around your ears like sparkles from some unknow satellites. Despite of its short lenghth, Cluster is a very rich album, containing enough ideas to fill the full discography of less inspired musicians...You'l...

|[Eg0_130] CDRX : The purgatory’s public swimming pool - CDRX|
Let's starts the new year with one of our fidel contributors: CDRX. His new album The purgatory's public swimming pool is a captivating subterranean soundscape. This time some noisy / industrial-flavoured touches have been included, and the final result is rather dark and gritty, but with a very cohesive atmosphere despite of its heterogenous components.

|[Eg0_128] Jeff Sampson : Energy of the Multiverse - Jeff Sampson|
Jeff Sampson is an american singer / keyboardist / composer with a rich background in ambient and experimental music, but also free improvisation and progressive rock. Since our first listening to some of his voice-based music in 2011 (the splendid Requiem in shallows) we wished to release some of his works. Energy of the multiverse was worth the wait. This long-form drone is very pleasant and subtle, a perfect soundtrack for daydreaming on a lazy sunday...

|[Eg0_126] Crepusculo : I'm a comet - You are the world - Crepusculo|
Crepusclo's third release on eg0cide shows a significant evolution in the artist's works. On this new EP I'm a comet - You are the world, he added some flesh and feelings to his usual cold and abstract style to create two catchy ambient dub tracks with more marked beats and upfront melody. But as usual with Crepusculo, this EP is completely hypnotic, carefully composed and mixed.

|[Eg0_125] Meho : Dwarf Galaxies - Meho|
Meho is back on eg0cide with a space-themed album : Dwarf Galaxies. But as usual with him, the atmosphere is rather cold and bleak - and totally hypnotic. So don't expect flashy, new-agey "space music" - and be prepared for a slow drift into the void.

His music has evolved through the years, it is often more atmospheric, but always original and challenging (don't expect new-agish ambient here!)

In his new album Larmes de feu (could be translated as Fire Tears), Mescalibur continues to explore the possibilities of his analogic synthesizer. This time the mood is rather dark and heavy. These 3 improvised tracks were indeed directly inspired by an intense state of pain caused by a long-term illness.

|[Eg0_117] Spleen : Detest - Spleen|
Spleen is an one-man project from Serbia which mixes dark ambient and atmospheric rock. Detest is an epic concept album dealing with the theme of misanthropy. It starts with an hypnotic ritual sequence, but later tracks also contains lots of industrial rock elements. All along the album, bleak drones, crushing guitar riffs, pounding rythms and haranguing voices join their forces to take the listener into a world of morbid fixations and reclusive anger ...

Icoste is a solo project of electronic musician Stéphane Jeanin from Belmont, USA. Dysthymia is one of his most experimental works to date. This amazing album has an overall opressive and dark tone expressed through various means : eerie floating voices, mysterious drones, swirling alien pads that sometimes turn into noisy electronic storms. The whole forms a deep sonic experience that becomes more and more powerful track after track, culminating with the complex and crushing rythmical sequence...

|[Eg0_114] Luciftias : Chronic Pentatonic - Luciftias|
After several collaborations with eg0cide's team, Luciftias finally brings a first solo album on the label. Chronic Pentatonic is one of his most subtle and ambitious works to our ears. This guitar-based piece was inspired by Steve Reich's composition methods, using loops of various lengths, here with an ambient approach. The result is a very organic, slowly evolving drone that deserves an active listening although it can also be enjoyed as background music.
Keywords: ambient; drone; Luciftias; eg0cide
|[Eg0_113] Emerge : Quantum - Emerge|
Emerge is the solo project of Sascha Stadlmeier, who also curates the Attenuation Circuit label . Today he offers us a deep and subtle piece of droney music. Quantum's several layers swirl, rise, and cross each others without repeating themselves, creating a strong, almost mystical atmosphere.

|[Eg0_112] Nowa Ziemia : Trajektorie - Nowa Ziemia|
We discovered Nowa Ziemia with these 2 tracks that he firstly self-released separately . "Bez światła" (without light) is rather abstract and noisy, "Wzorcec" (patterns) is quieter and more melodic. Both show a great sense of atmosphere building, somewhere between minimalist post-rock and raw guitar drone. They now form Trajektorie, the first web album of this very promising artist

|[Eg0_111] Half Evidence : Rain Spirits - Half Evidence|
Rain Spirits, Half Evidence's new album has been recorded (mostly) during the rainy month of april 2013 in Champagnac-la-Prune. Totally improvised as usual, these tracks show the most melodic side of the band, including some almost bluesy/jazzy atmospheres - but still within the band's personal blend of peaceful drifts and grittier percussive/scrapping sounds.

All tracks sound very focused and cohesive despite of their improvised nature. It also seems that no looping was used in these recordings - and this is something we find quite refreshin...

L'anorkhestra is a free improvisation band with variable members. The 2 tracks of Smashed Bulbs Enlightment were recorded summer 2012. They mix abstract landscapes and raw free rock blasts, in a way that sometimes reminds me the spirit of the most radical "kraut rock" recordings in the early 70s.

Anonymous polish droners Digital Mass are back on eg0cide with a new mysterious offering.
